Creating a free landing page is something that any business owner, or digital marketer, can do. But what if you’re looking for ways to make your landing pages even more compelling – to get even more people to click on them, and bring them back for more content, and more frequently?
That’s where the magic of Async comes in. With Async, you can create a free landing page, but you can also take it a step further and integrate a powerful lead magnet, an irresistible offer, and a highly engaging call-to-action – in one click.
Step 1: Create a Free Landing Page
Every business owner, or digital marketer, can create a free landing page, as I mentioned. But in order to create something special, you need to take a little extra step. You need to use a service, like Bluehost, that provides you with a fully functional, and free landing page – but you need to do more than just that. You need to customize the content to be more compelling.
One of the best things about Bluehost is that they provide you with a fully functioning WordPress landing page, which you can simply copy and paste, and start using. As a result, you won’t need to worry about finding a web host that provides you with a landing page, or about learning how to use WordPress – you can simply use Bluehost, and start blogging or launching a new product immediately. (more on that below)
Step 2: Customize the Landing Page
With your own personal blog, or business website, you’re in control of what goes on it. And that means you can make the most of your landing page, and use it to it’s full potential. Simply customise the content.
To do this, you need to go to your WordPress dashboard, and click on the “Settings” button – from here you can access your landing page, which you can edit, and re-style in any way you see fit.
One of the best things about a landing page, is that it’s usually fairly simple to design and edit. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get some traffic, or generate leads, then you can use a tool like ConvertKit, or MailChimp, to send out a mailing with a link to your landing page – and you’re good to go.
Step 3: Install WordPress, Set Up Your Blog, and Start Blogging
WordPress makes it extremely easy to get up and running with a blog or website. Not only do they provide you with a free, fully functioning website, but they also make it incredibly easy to install custom themes, and plug-ins – which you can use to take your blog or website to the next level.
Even if you’re not familiar with WordPress, or blogging, the steps to setting up a simple blog, or website, are fairly simple. You can use the simple three step process I’ll walk you through below – or you can follow the WordPress instructions, which walk you through the process step by step.
Step 1: Install WordPress
The first step in creating a simple blog or website is to install WordPress on your computer. This is a free, and open source CMS (content management system), which makes it incredibly easy to use, and access from anywhere. All you need is a reliable Internet connection, and a computer, to install WordPress.
The best thing about WordPress is that they offer a wealth of free training, tutorials, and support – which covers everything you need to know, and nothing you don’t. So even if you’re a complete beginner, you’ll have no problem getting up and running with a blog, or website in no time at all.
To install WordPress, you can either use their convenient one-click installer, or go through the manual process – which is outlined below. For more information on installing WordPress, see their official documentation – or ask your web host for assistance.
